10:40 AM Friday Update:

Server maintenance is over! All catalyst delivery has been completed!

Do not be alarmed when you log in and use a stack of catalysts and only see your balance increase by one though the full stack is consumed. We've added the remaining catalysts to your balance during maintenance.
UPDATE (10/16 at 10:30 a.m. PDT): The fixes have been applied and we will be sending out the replacement catalysts over the next couple hours. Once complete, the catalysts will appear in your balance in the potion shack.
Hello,

We will be performing an all server maintenance starting at 9 a.m. PDT Friday morning. This maintenance will address the following issues with Kyra's Potion Shack:

1) Stacked catalysts in inventory cannot be redeemed to your potion shack balance.
2) Catalysts are tradable/sellable on the trade broker.
3) Pricing adjustment of catalysts from the Harvest Festival NPC.

The estimated downtime is 2 hours. Thank you for your patience!

All game servers will be under maintenance starting at 9 a.m. PDT on Friday, October 16.

@bobthebuilder, please contact our support team. The GMs can work with you to see what's going on!

@Lezard, no changes to the looting. Catalysts will still function like cosmoshards.

when will the banquet of blood return ?


There are no plans for the Banquet of Blood to be included as part of this event.

My bad, didn't mean to edit your post above.
Catalysts will no longer be sellable following maintenance.
Hey all,

Unfortunately the Halloween Potion Shack promotion launched with several issues this morning:

1) Not all dungeons were immediately dropping catalysts at release.
2) Stacked catalysts in inventory cannot be redeemed to your potion shack balance.
3) Catalysts are tradable/sellable on the trade broker. This was not intended.
4) Pricing of catalysts from the Harvest Festival NPC.

All dungeons participating in the promotion should now be dropping catalysts. This was fixed this afternoon, shortly after the event began.

Our testing today revealed, as some astute players suggested, that the issues with redeeming catalysts to your balance in the potion shack stemmed from the catalysts being stackable this time around. This also allowed them to become sellable on the trade broker.

Here is our plan to resolve these issues:

1) We will run maintenance tomorrow (Oct. 15) at 9 a.m. PDT to deploy the fix. The maintenance should run approximately 2 hours.

2) Following the maintenance, players with a stack of catalysts in their inventory will find that they convert into only one usable catalyst. For example, if you have a stack of 10 catalysts in your inventory following maintenance, they will convert into only one catalyst when used/transferred to your balance in the potion shack.

In order to address this, we will be adding catalysts to each player’s potion shack balance equivalent to the number they have stacked at the time the servers go down for maintenance. For example, if you have 10 catalysts stacked in inventory at the time the servers go down for maintenance, your catalyst balance in the potion shack will be increased by 9 following maintenance. You can then redeem your stack for one additional catalyst to restore your original count of 10.

Until maintenance tomorrow, you can take the following steps to continue using catalysts you earn in-game:

1) Use catalysts immediately upon receiving them to prevent them from stacking.

2) Players have identified that transferring your existing stacks of catalysts to your bank and then transferring them back into inventory individually will also work.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by these issues today. In our efforts to improve the overall potion shack experience, we overlooked the full impact of our changes.

Kyra’s Halloween Potion Shack is just getting started. We took great effort to improve the event based on your prior feedback and make it more exciting and dynamic by having it change and evolve over time with new prizes and new hunts being announced weekly. Following the deploy of our fixes tomorrow, we hope you’ll get as much enjoyment out of the event as we got out of putting it together for you.

Happy (head)hunting!
We're going to have an update regarding the current issues very shortly.
Hi RanGaming!

Great questions :)

There is no formal quest to accept in-game for these bounties - any qualifying monster killed by a player within 5 levels will count towards the total. So, yes! Just go there and kill them.

At level 65 if the "level 60" bounty is level 60 you will also be able to hunt that as well (but if it's 59, you won't qualify).

We'll be providing regular updates, though the frequency may change a little throughout the event if the community finds they need more regular information.

We should have some information available tomorrow on the early progress on this first set of bounties! :)
Good questions!

1) Do I need to accept a quest before killing the hunts? Or do I just need to go there and kill them?

You just need to go there and kill them. Make sure you're killing the enemy with the exact name as listed on the poster/in the news post.

2) As a 65, it means I can go to both level 65 and 60?

As long as the mob is within five levels of your own (above or below), it will count towards the total.

3) From how much time to how much time will EME be posting how many left and where will it be?

We're going to try to update the community regarding the current kill counts twice per hunt. I'm curious to see how the community will perform on the first hunt, so we'll definitely be checking tomorrow morning.

Updates regarding the kill counts will be posted on our social networks.

You have until Sunday at 11:59 p.m. PDT to complete the current hunts. We'll announce the results of this hunt as well as the targets for the next one on Monday. You'll then have until Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. PDT to complete them. We'll post the results of that hunt on Thursday and announce new ones as well. This cycle will repeat until November 5 when the event ends.
I'll let the production team know!
Thanks, Buddha252!

This is a known issue, but thanks for making sure we know! I'm going to lock this thread and redirect to the main feedback/questions thread just to keep things orderly :)

Thank you for the heads up. We are aware there are a few issues with the Catalysts and are currently working to address them.
Please feel free to continue this thread on topic, but I do want to clarify one point:

The extended maintenance periods this week were not for TERA. The extended maintenance periods this week were to perform some time consuming and necessary work on physical servers. This has nothing to do with game patches or content, and is just something that needs to occur periodically. It's important to remember that servers are computers too, and occasionally need to have extra work done to keep them up and running the rest of the time.
Just to clarify, these costumes will be released on October 29, as previously announced.
Other Halloween items from past years will be added to the potion shack and the store throughout the event. From the news post:

In celebration of the season, we’ve also revised the Potion Shack prize list with a Halloween touch. And every Monday for the duration of the event, we’ll update the Potion Shack and the TERA Store with more great items from Halloweens past, leading up to the release of the new community-designed “Gothic Rapture” costume set on Thursday, October 29!

Can you guys post some screenshots as well as the char name/server?
Please direct any feedback, questions, or comments on the event to the active, pinned thread: http://tera-forums.enmasse.com/forums/general-discussion/topics/Kyras-Event-QuestionsFeedbackTechnical-Issues

Praise Sywhale.


I'm having a different issue tho, I just ran BRHM, 2 catalysts dropped, I got them (not sure about the others), I used one of them, reached 5 catalysts (I had 4 left from the old event), tried to use the other one, checked the confirm box, clicked Confirm and... nothing. Nothing happened. I thought, well, maybe you can't use it if you already have 5 catalysts, so I brewed a potion, got x75 Spellbind, claimed it, but still can't use the catalyst. Gonna try relogging now.


We're looking into this now, thanks for the heads up.
Just to be clear, Lezard you were able to use all but your last catalyst, and AugustoC you were able to use only the first?

Can you both try shutting down TERA completely, and opening it back up then trying again?
FaunBait on 10/15/2015, 11:41 AM - view
5 candy per cannon run, 5x a day gets you 25 candies? Then a catalyst costs 250 candies? Then you need 5 catalysts to brew a potion? Then its RNG with crappy items?



Catalysts are 50 candies each, 250 for each potion brew.

I am more thinking "Who in their right mind thought this was a good idea when they have two dead servers?!?" MT/TR/CH and possibly HW might have a chance even at the mid-level ones if enough want it but LoT/Vot? yeah right we probably can't even get the 65 ones unless we have a few willing to sit there all day farming those mobs =/

I am assuming at this point all EmE staff if they play legit characters only play the above servers and refuse to actually try VoT/LoT. A few of us are either stuck or are trying to still make a go at it on these servers and just to got "we don't care about you" yet again by EmE.


the kill counts are calculated across all servers not per server.
Treeshark is looking into the dungeon rewards to make sure they're all providing catalysts, hang tight for an update.
Hi Terraforming,

Channelworks should be providing catalysts please give it another try and confirm you received them!


Kyra’s Pop-Up Potion Shack is returning for Halloween, with a “trick-or-treat” twist!

The popular potion shack is back for a limited time, from Thursday, October 15 (after maintenance) until Thursday, November 5. And just as before, there’s no need to search for the potion shack: It’s right there in the welcome window when you log in!

This time, we’re putting the Halloween spin on the potion shack with two new methods for obtaining catalysts: Halloween Headhunts and the Eldritch Academy’s Halloween event.
Halloween Headhunts

Check in on Mondays and Thursdays throughout the Halloween event for the announcements of Kyra’s “Halloween Headhunts.” These are global kill-count events that call upon the whole community to kill a quota of specific targets…and reward every player on the server with free catalysts!

The targets are divided into level-based challenges, starting at level 20, and for your kills to count toward the total, you must kill targets within five levels of your level. (If you try to bag level 50 targets with your level 65 characters, those kills don’t count.)

There are a total of six hunts throughout the entirety of the event, with six targets per hunt, for a potential total of 36 catalysts! Once each hunt is concluded and the results have been posted, log in within 24 hours to have your free catalysts delivered to Item Claim! En Masse will keep you posted on current kill totals via our social networks while the hunts are active.

Ready to get started? Here are your first six targets!


You have until Sunday, October 18 at 11:59 p.m. PDT to complete the first hunt. We’ll check the final tally and post the results on Monday, October 19…at which time we’ll also announce the targets for the next hunt!
The Eldritch Academy Halloween Event


If you’ve already taken down your quota of hunting targets and you’re looking for more catalysts, head to Pora Elinu and look for Ellonia. She can teleport you to the Eldritch Academy, where you can participate in the Halloween “candy rush” instance, where waves of monsters try to pillage the academy’s giant cauldron of candy—and you can use a combination of siege weapons and special skills to drive them off.

When you’re finished, return to Ellonia in Pora Elinu to exchange your reward tokens for catalysts and other cool Halloween accessories!

Other Catalyst Acquisition Methods
These aren’t the only ways to obtain catalysts, of course. Just as with the previous version of Kyra’s Pop-Up Potion Shack, you can get catalysts in a variety of ways.

Catalysts found in-game are added directly to your inventory. Using the catalysts (by right-clicking them) adds them to your catalyst balance in Kyra’s Pop-Up Potion Shack, which you can access via the TERA welcome window. You can also purchase catalysts directly from Kyra with EMP.

Prizes


In celebration of the season, we’ve also revised the Potion Shack prize list with a Halloween touch. And every Monday for the duration of the event, we’ll update the Potion Shack and the TERA Store with more great items from Halloweens past, leading up to the release of the new community-designed “Gothic Rapture” costume set on Thursday, October 29!

That’s a whole lot of treats—with no tricks!

Be sure to check back Monday for new prizes and a new set of headhunt targets!

All the information on the event is available here in the news post.
Hey everyone, the potion shack information is up! :)
Information will be posted soon!
If you have not already done so, I'd recommend that you submit a Support Ticket so that our Customer Support Agents can assist you if the issue persists after the Maintenance has completed.

I would also highly recommend that prior to submitting your request, that you run the Repair feature in your TERA Launcher.

( If needed, http://support.enmasse.com/tera/repair-tera-to-resolve-common-issues )

The reason the Repair is needed, is due to the fact that sometimes some file corruption in your TERA installation might occur when a crash happens, or if something went wrong during the process of moving your character from Island of Dawn to Stepstone Isle.

Keep in mind, that the Repair itself might not resolve the issue 100% by itself.

Additional steps may need to be taken by Support in order to restore access to the character, which is why a Support Ticket would be a good route to take.
This maintenance, like Tuesday's maintenance is extended and will affect our web services as well as the game servers. This is due to the extensive work that is being performed on the physical servers and has nothing to do with TERA.

Hello,

We will be performing an extended server maintenance starting at 4 a.m. PDT tomorrow morning. This maintenance will conclude the work that was begun during our extended Tuesday maintenance this week, and will also remove a placeholder achievement that has been causing a miscalculation for laurels. The estimated downtime is 6 hours. Thank you for your patience.

All game servers will be under maintenance starting at 4 a.m. PDT on Thursday, October 15 and web services may be intermittently unavailable during the maintenance window.

(Not sure what time it is in PDT right now? It's listed on the top right corner of our server status page.)

Emm....What about Kyra’s Pop-Up Potion Shack? When?v_v


Thursday :)
One small update to provide on this:

We're lowering the requirement to level 5.
Banim on 10/13/2015, 02:34 PM - view
I'll give you a hint. In Tours of Duty there seems to be dummy achievement that can't be achieved by players, probably for test purposes... or maybe to artificially bump up the laurel requirement, since a little bird told me this achievement is worth 650 points.


Yes that is it, and we're trying to figure out why it didn't activate, or how to activate it for everyone.

If you all can give me screenshots of being stuck at Diamond, that will help too.
We are looking into this. I think we should be able to find a quick fix for this.
They should be there now.
Our understanding is that this is fixed in the build deployed today. We were unable to verify the fix however, as we did not experience the issue on any machine in-house.

You might give it a shot and see. I'd be curious to confirm if it is or not.

This change is listed in the patch notes as well.


Just in time to jazz up your character’s harvest costume, TERA presents four new products—covering six new back-slot items—to help unleash your inner angel!

Visit the TERA Store starting Tuesday, October 13 at 11 a.m. PDT to pick up your pair of either the pristine White Wings or the ominous Black Wings back-slot items.

Looking for something more exotic? Grab a Guardian Angel loot box for a chance at the glamorous Pink Pinions wings or the fabulous Purple Pennons wings. If you’re hoping for something even more eye-catching, pick up an Avenging Angel loot box, and you might just find yourself the proud owner of a pair of Golden Gliders wings, or the Fiery Feathers wings!

(Please note that these wings are purely cosmetic; they do not allow your character to fly…although you might fall with more style.)
GM's can get you unstuck if nothing else is working! Make sure to tell them the server and character name.
Wings are up in-game and on the web: https://store.enmasse.com/tera
Potion Shack starts Thursday, October 15.
The wings will be released shortly. The Halloween event/Potion Shack launches on Thursday, October 15.
Servers came back up at 10:30, if you're unable to log in please close your launcher and open it back up!
Maintenance is going to run about 30 minutes longer. Expected up-time is around 10:30 a.m. PDT.
It's going to be an intermittent issue for (likely) the entire evening through tomorrow morning's maintenance.
Hello all,

We're aware that the TERA website is currently inaccessible. We are working diligently to resolve this issue but it will not be a quick fix. We estimate that the TERA website will be unavailable through tomorrow morning's extended server maintenance and will provide updates as they become available.

We know players are excited to read tomorrow's "The Lost Isle" patch notes, so for the meantime we have posted them to the official subreddit and you can read them here.

Hi BeeTheKiller,

Zenobia is not one of the North American TERA servers so you won't find players here with codes available for that server.

You may have some luck on the official EU TERA forums, though. Good luck!
This week's "Stuff" is a preview of what's to come with Tuesday's patch!

The Lost Isle
Tuesday's maintenance will bring "The Lost Isle" update to TERA!

Patch notes will become available Monday, but you can also get a preview of what's coming from our news post and by viewing today's livestream.

Halloween is Coming!
Halloween arrives in TERA next Tuesday, and candy cannons aren't all the season has in store!

Later next week Kyra will be bringing back her potion shack, and closer to Halloween the winning designs from the community costume design contest will be released. It's going to be a spooky, fun month!

Wings: Flying into the Shop Next Week

Though no male characters are pictured below, these wings are not gender restricted.

Gold and Dungeon Drop Changes
The previously announced gold changes will be arriving with next week's patch. Dungeon drop changes will not be coming with this patch but are being worked on and will be implemented soon.

Autumn Loading Screen Contest
Don't forget to enter the Autumn Loading Screen contest! All entries must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on October 13.

Ongoing Performance Issues
Bluehole is continuing to work on resolving the performance issues that arose with the recent "Go Berserk" update. Though we don't have any detailed information to share, there are several updates being worked on for implementation that will help improve framerate issues.

Yea, right... All European and Asian providers suddenly messed something up not to be able to play Tera and only Tera. Everything else works fine. Except Tera.


Not all, but there's a solid trend right now that a few players from certain regions are experiencing the issue, while the majority of players are connecting to all services without issue. Keep in mind that reaching a server in Texas is different than reaching our servers which are located in Chicago. Just because you can reach one without issue does not mean your connection to the other is equally solid.

If any players experiencing the issue this morning have run the diagnostic tool and can provide specific information about where their connections are struggling that would be very helpful.
Hi Protoshadow,

This is something players have reported before and it might have several causes. You could try verifying the file integrity through Steam, or also close Steam completely and check to see if they've issued any updates.

If you're able to launch the TERA launcher directly, that's a great sign and it means you're not actually having any connection issues with the game servers.

Have you been able to log in before through Steam, or was this the first time you'd entered your information?
Hi Bglzaborg,

Can you send us a support ticket with the following details:

- Your GM name
- Your Guild name
- Your server
- A screenshot of the error you see when it fails to add the guild

This information will help us figure out what's going wrong and get your guild registered :)

Well, okay. It seems a little odd to me that removal of a few achievements would greatly harm participants' crusade scores. Did achievements really have that much weight?


News to me too! Not really compared to the other dungeons. I wouldn't say achieves are perma-removed, but they will be removed for the foreseeable future.
We'll have more details available soon, we're excited to see Kyra return, too! :)

You can follow this existing thread on Kyra's return.

I'll lock this thread since it's a duplicate.
We are making headway into changing the catalyst so that it's stackable and distributed like cosmoshards. It's going into test later today or tomorrow. No promises yet though!
So here's the update. The reason why we wanted to extend the Crusades season was due to the removal of certain achievements in the build going out next week. This would affect scores in the Achievements section for the Challenger's league. The devs previously told us this would cause much harm, but given our case now, the best course of action is to remove Achievements from Crusades altogether.

This new crusade season will continue, but the length will be shortened back to 28 days, and Achievements will not count at the end of the season. This change will be reflected in next week's maintenance.
We have people that play from the 1-2 hours a day range to the much more hours a day range. I don't think anyone here averages 12+hours a day just playing the game though (they are supposed to be working). It is also rare that we play waving the EME flag, as a lot of us like to play on PVP servers :). It would be hard to see a GM as 99% of the time they are invisible as well.

That said, you are right, we don't know as much as someone who plays 12+ hours a day. We are in constant contact with players who are, and with a combination of everything we are able to get a decent idea of the state of things. The issue is getting things "truly fixed" takes a whole lot of time.

The second question... the honest answer is that i want plans but there are no plans. Araya, me, and the community team will be meeting very soon to discuss how we handle the state of things there.

We are looking at our options and will hopefully make a decision today or tomorrow. Some of this stuff requires developer input so it doesn't get worse and we are having a discussion with them this evening about it. Will keep you all updated.


TERA’s The Lost Isle update goes live next Tuesday, October 13. This content update unveils Stepstone Isle, the new starting player experience that replaces the Island of Dawn. Alternatively, if you’ve been thinking about leveling up a new alt, you may want to wait until after the update hits. Not only will you get to experience the story behind the enigmatic island hidden from sight by the Mysterium until now, but you may well appreciate the Isle’s more accelerated path to level 11.

Character creation and the character selection screen are also receiving a makeover in The Lost Isle update. Players can now mix and match races and classes on a single screen during character creation, while the character selection screen has a much more dramatic flair, and also allows players to move their characters around on the screen.

In addition, this update gives non-max-level PvPers a new battleground. The Gridiron Academy is a level 40-64 version of the level 65 Gridiron battleground, complete with Vanguard quests and rep rewards.

Lastly, The Lost Isle will introduce a “Returning Hero” tab as part of the Vanguard Requests screen. This new tab is designed to help players with high-level characters hit the ground running when they return to the game after an extended absence. Any player with a level 58-65 character who has not logged in for at least a month gains access to the Returning Hero tab for three days. This tab provides information about class skills to help players relearn their class and allows players to upgrade their old gear (limited to one character per server), so they can remain competitive.

All this and more will be unearthed in The Lost Isle next week.

Also watch for the return of Kyra’s Pop-Up Potion Shack next week as part of our upcoming Halloween events.
